of if you're going to choose a discretionary action as the trigger that it would be a planning or building permit only as opposed to, you know, kind of these ancillary permits? >> well, i don't think that the other permits are ancillary. in fact, maybe the concerns have been voiced here about those permits that are issued by other agencies where the notice is lesser bust. one of the things that's not really come out explicitly in this discussion is, and i think it's unlikely that the notice provisions will adversely affect how the planning department does things basically we'll send out a dr, 311 notice, a notice before this body, all of those notices, up until the point that action that triggers c-e-q-a review will say x has been [speaker not understood] in term of environmental review. at this hearing or some subsequent hearing, there could be an action that would trigger a c-e-q-a review period. if you have c-e-q-a concerns, contact planning department, rec, park, whoever, and that department has an obligation to notify those people. and the thing i think has not come out at all in this
that if there is an appeal of the c-e-q-a action to the board, then they have to be either affirmed, recertify, if you will, that's not technically legally what it is. but the matter is before them in their consideration. so, it's only in the case of a c-e-q-a appeal that they are acting to certify. in the case of something that isn't appealed but is a legislative action by the board, like any body that uses a c-e-q-a document, they have to adopt the c-e-q-a document, the findings, the mitigation measures, whatever else applies. so, that's really unchanged as we discussed earlier, this whole concept. >> but there is a way the legislation is presented at least the way i've understood it, is there is no appeal to the board of supervisors on a certification. it just automatically goes to them. isn't that correct? >> elaine warren, deputy city attorney. you're referring to actions where the board has to act to approve the projerk anyway. >> yes. >> and the way the ordinance is written, in those cases as bill explained earlier, the c-e-q-a process -- let's say there is an e-i-r that requires certification. * p
from the project. it would provide postings of approval actions and inform the public on exactly how and when to file an appeal. the process is now in place is less clear to the public as it relies on many things. we have to look at board of the clerk procedures. there is a city attorney opinion letter. and every individual determination for an appeal if appropriate, is it timely, has to be reviewed by the city attorney for review by determination. important to the hpc in particular, the proposed procedures would change nothing about how historic resources are evaluated under see qualitiv so, there is some confusion as you heard about that. there would be -- the only change relative to historic resources would be a small change to the special noticing that happens to those who are on our preservation mailing list. and this notice for historic resources was amended in the recent version just last week so it would address the concern and provide notice for any city adopted service. so, that's kind of the big overview. now our senior environmental planner sarah jones is going to go thro
action coalition and on behalf of our 70 something members. this project was presented to us earlier in the year and to make its a brief as possible, we loved it. it's right in our sweet spot. the urbanism, fantastic, on-site affordable housing. enormous amount of bicycle parking. it is a strong and welcome addition to this evolving neighborhood. i think the benefits of this project are so obvious and so overwhelming i'm not sure exactly why i'm here except i fear physical violence from bob if i don't express these views. [laughter] >>> i don't think you should hesitate a second before approving this project. it's wonderful. >>> good afternoon, commissioners, danny campbell with the sheet workers local 104. and i echo that gentleman. this is going to be a great benefit to the community. you know, the open spaces that i saw, there's really exciting. the planner mr. guy said, it meets the goals of the transbay plan. you know, there are wonderful economic benefits with the fees it's going to bring the city. i think this is a great project so we look forward to your support. thank you. >

're supposed to do. if there is no notice about any discretionary action, that notice will incorporate notice about the c-e-q-a that would, you know -- >> but you could appeal c-e-q-a on nonplanning related permits. i just want to -- >> yes. so, i guess -- so, in terms of this argument, looking at the first discretionary action, can you describe what currently are considered -- you said not all permits are discretionary permits. so, could you outline some of the permits that are discretionary? maybe the city attorney could do that. >> i'll take a start. i think the simplest thing is to talk about the things that are in the planning department's domain. conditional use permit is a discretionary permit. a building permit is maybe the most widespread for exemptions. but there are many departments that take discretionary actions. the park takes actions. mta takes actions, puc takes actions. some of those are discretionary, some are not. all that are discretionary subject to c-e-q-a.
action on the term sheet, that pier 30-32 ground lease and seawall lot 30 or amendments to the water plan until after pier 30-32 cac holds meeting to discuss those items. so i do want to again appreciate those. i think the most important thing at this point is a substantive and robust discussion and process that is meaningful. i think at the end of the day it will land on a better project both for this neighborhood and for the city and i look forward to that engagement. i really want to thank our neighborhood and community leaders for being respectful of the process and agreeing to participate in this. it could be something that people could set out and just say we oppose it, no way, we're not going to participate. but i really want to give it up for our residents for really approaching this in a respectful way and being open-minded and trying to work with the warriors on putting forward the best process. >> president chiu: thank you. supervisor kim has made a motion to amend. seconded by supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos: thank you, mr. president. i just want to briefly note that i
no discrimination against any minorities. this is why we do not have any fear that specific actions will be taken against minorities, against christians. we do not forget at the same assad -- if you are the assad regime, but it belongs to the alawites. if you are made specific group within the alawite community, you are investing in the civil war. there is a fear about the future of the alawite community. since many from the community, they played a role killing other syrians for money, for support from the security forces. but we are committed to the syrians for all. we are proposing within the opposition a program called a transitional justice that can assure all the minorities to be a part from syria -- in 1956 the prime minister, the majority of the christians. a minority of the minority. even that as he became prime minister for two terms. the muslims have 4 seats in parliament and this supported his positions. in syria we did not have a history of civil war. many changes in the social fabric. i think the nature of the syrian society as a conciliation between still exists. this is a great as
effort. the other thing i think that is striking is the way in which he really kicks into action the whole of the whitehall bureaucracy which has worked quite efficiently under neville chamberlain. he was not a fool. he was a good administrator but churchill has these famous, what would now be like post-it kind of things which says action this dayment and if he wants some minor bureaucrat to get going on an issue, he put, you know, action today on a memo. he's interrogating the whole bureaucracy, kind of like john kennedy used to do. don't just take it from the immediate person below you. find out what's going on. and you can see in some of the diaries of civil servants this sense that suddenly the machine is just gearing up to a completely different level. and 245 sense of a dynamo at work is the other thing that is really important. >> and it is, of course, a conjunction of him realizing that his position is unique. i felt as if i was walking with destiny. but also the conjunction is with a nation and a people who are at a unique point in their history. it's very easy now to ju
were doing. two things that were brought to me when we did our after action talk. one was a shared mission. folks in the military, it was clear to me, and we had a great working relationship, they are going to do what we need to do from jump street. they are just going to make it happen. but it would have been important to me, i could have used that vehicle, the common operating picture, to show what that mission was. why are we clearing specific routes? we often in the city jump right into our projects, we do this day in and day out, i know which routes have to be cleared, but if i had used the common operating picture down at ocean beach and showed them from the military why we were clearing certain routes, again we would have gotten it done. it was brought to my attention to do that, to have the setting, it talk about the common operating picture so we can all see it, then we started to breathe at that place. it changed everything. one of the biggest things for me that i went back to, i need that in my go bag, in my package as i go out to an incident is make sure i have so
for stanford against ucl action konth with our storm watch now are rain and especially pointed communities in the sougd land. following the trail of damage. the expected as well as the unexpected results that's right. here in the santa santa kruz mountains -- in one instance put a strange twist the on what could have been a tragic situation. strong wind trop lthis tree down power line this is morning in the community of fell on the in the santa kruz mountains. . the true noked outpower to about 75 homes. somepeople said they knew this storm fts going to cause damage >> there's a lot more rain, eight a lot more wind. it wasjust constantly pouring douvenlt it was solid. that rain and wind caused the roof to dave in near skots valley >> i heard at that big clatter. i knew it was a tree down, but didn't know -- beyond that i didn't know >> travel travs tree professional bill pilgrim said a large tree felt and knocked over another bay trooet tree that knocked into the house. thesecond saved the home because the first treefs so big it probably would have went through the house >> so in a way t
or modify any departmental action, this permit would be upheld by default unless there is another motion. >> okay. no further motion, then we are done with this item. >> permit upheld. >> thank you. >> so commissioners, the last item... if i could ask the folks to please clear the room, we have additional business to attend to this evening. thank you so much and thank you for your patience throughout this evening. the last item on your calendar is the board consideration and possible adoption of your annual report for the fiscal year 2011-12. the city charter requires that all boards and commissions adon't an annual report and this is designed to fulfill that mandate and also designed to educate the public on the work of the board and the accomplishments in the past fiscal year. i thought that i would briefly talk on the highlights of the report if you could bear with me and i would be happy to answer any questions that you might have. i know that it is a late night. the report does cover the fiscal year from july 1, 2011 to 2012. during that year. the board held 25 meetings for a total
of the housing action coalition. and i should say that i believe the project sponsors came to us in july and presented a project. this is sort of one of the surprises. we don't normally get involved in projects like this. we generally have a threshold of 10 units or greater. but they asked to present to us and we agreed to review it. and on behalf of the members of the endorsement committee, they liked the project. they liked it an awful lot. felt that it's exactly what you heard, it's good urban infill. it's good use of scarce land in san francisco. and, in fact, felt that this is a good looking design. and putting this development at this location to our members was a higher use of the land than preserving a 1960s land use pattern that is not very intensive. it doesn't make much sense any more. it is not an architecturally distinguished area there. this is a far better design. so, what our members said was we would support this project and endorse it subject to two conditions. that a landscaping plan be adopted and it looks like there is a well qualified landscape architect involved in
close to 7:30. thank you. >> we're trying our best. item t, report ofç actions. closed session actions of october 30, 2012, board of education with a vote of 5 ayes, two absentees and -- in the case of the 9th commission corporation versus?áh cgc-is 1-51387, san francisco superior court pursuant to which the district will acquire fee title to the subject property in september 2013, along withdh249 certain overdue management fees totaling approximately 150,000 in exchange for which district is dismissing its counterclaims in action with prejudice. the board of education by a vote of 4 ayes and three absences, wynns maufas and yee approve the the contract for one program administrator. item u, other informational items posted in the agenda is a staff report on informational notice of classified personnel trackses, and item v, adjourn. meeting adjourned. ú >> roll call. >> commissioner bonita and lev are on their way. >> i will make an announcement for those in the audience that item 11, the outside music festival permit will not be on the agenda. we will put that off, make sure it is
is happening. the proposed amendments would deem valid prior c-e-q-a approval actions which could force project appellants to file lawsuits even before the board reaches decisions on their appeals in order to avoid c-e-q-a's strict statute of limitations. this could subject the city to additional and unnecessary expensive litigation. and finally, the proposed amendments would force members of the public to file two appeals and pay two appeal fees of $500 each in order to seek review proposed negative declarations before the board of supervisors. i also want to conclude by noting that this move comes in the context of a tax on the epa, couldn't clean air pact, clean water act endangered species act and [speaker not understood] law here in california c-e-q-a. and the hope the city of san francisco would be rather than looking at making c-e-q-a and public participation more limited, looking at ways in which to defend our hallmark [speaker not understood]. thank you. >>> president fong, commissioners, matt reagan with the bay area council. we're a business sponsored public policy advocacy organizat
is crucially important ask it happens when any sort of determination or agency action is required by the board of supervisors on that project anyway * r. and that's described in subheading 8 of our memo. and what it actually does is it eliminates significant dialogue between the planning commission, the planning department, and community members and ultimately silences this planning commission's voice. ordinarily, the planning commission would accept public comment on a draft e-i-r. the planning department would then respond to that, and the response would be received by this planning commission. under these amendments, the planning commission would not receive the planning department's response. the department's response would go directly to the board of supervisors and the board of supervisors would be able to make that decision about the c-e-q-a determination. and it would do so not necessarily as a full board. it's very possible, and in fact likely, that a subcommittee of the board would be making the hearing -- the public hearing and the c-e-q-a determination. furthermore, there is no r
i thank you in advance for putting personification and putting action into the those of our country which says we will give back, we will make a difference, we will share what we know. we are global force for good. we will take what we have learned from the battlefield, which is the most traumatic and saddest way to learn about medical capability, we will take the unprecedented trauma actions that we have learned and capabilities, we will share them as is happening right now in the university of san francisco hospital system where our medical experts are sharing what they have learned on the battlefield for first responders and trauma support. we will share what we know about working with the amazing communication capabilities. northern california communication system and integrating those with our robust communication system, through dsca and the various military interagencies. we will do that, partly because it's interesting, partly because it's challenges, but because as someone said all disasters are local. somewhere there's a little girl or little by or grandmother t
it's an administrative action. >> okay, my apologies. i misunderstood. >> [inaudible]. [laughter] >> thank you. then the motion would be to engage -- to draft a resolution recommending to the board of supervisors that they engage the public and submit a third draft to this body -- >> the recommendation is not to the board of supervisors. it is to supervisor wiener personally. >> excuse me, to supervisor wiener. >> not to the board. >> and to consider clarity of the first discretionary action, noting that that may not be the most appropriate trigger, taking a look at extended appeal periods and defaulting to a longer appeal period when the actions -- excuse me, for those actions without notice. >> okay, yeah. that's a good summary. >> is that okay? >> sounds good. >> all right. commissioner antonini? >> aye. >> commissioner borden? >> aye. >> commissioner hillis? excuse me, he's absent. commissioner moore? >> aye. >> commissioner sugaya? >> aye. >> commissioner wu? >> aye. >> and commission president fong? >> aye. >> so moved, commissioners. >> thank you. >> that motion passes +6
or not they would take up a series of appeals over same sex marriage. they decided to take no action. let's bring in our legal guys avery freeman who is in cleveland and richard herman, he joins us from las vegas. so, gentlemen, everybody was excited about this. this is about equal protection. there were ten cases -- a total of five case that's the supreme court could have considered on this particular issue. why did they decide to pick any of them? avery? >> actually, they may very well take one of them, deb. what's going to happen here is, you're correct, there were ten petitions, five cases, one involving prop 8, the referendum in california and the 1996 congressional prohibition. there are so many questions. question is will the supreme court take the case? i think it would have really been impossible for the justices to make a decision on friday. they're going to continue to deliberate and i think we look forward to seeing something going to the supreme court. we just don't know which one of the cases the court will accept. >> richard, you know what's interesting about this is one of the rea

in front of you. and you guys taking an action, which we don't have action tonight. all that we can do is ask for a rehearing. the drawings don't match, they don't match the exiting on the kur he want condition of the drawings, and this drawing is the last cfc. so if you want to remove the second egress you would to sprinkle the building that is what we asked for last time. the way that these things can be addressed is that you take the rehearing and you fix it. we can't do that now. all that we are asking for you to do is fix the manifest and justice of the last hearing. >> we good evening, i am here with high colleague who we represent the permit holders and respond ans the fentins. i am going to address and then miss kid will take over to discuss the things in the brief. if you recall when we were here last time two days before the prior hearing, the counsel it filed two complaints about things that have been done in 2010. tonight they are here to tell you that the permit applications that were filed to address the complaints that were separate from the issues that were before you
by the opposition. >> these actions are not normal. in fact, they are simply undemocratic. they are getting people to commit these actions for political motives. in this case, it is specifically about blocking and albania's integration into the european union. >> the dissidents'acts of desperation are being turned into a political conspiracy. the debate is a political one. albania has shown little interest in compensating the victims. come to terms with the past is not on the political agenda in albania. it is only communist country whose secret police archives are still close. >> there are forces in albania that are reactionary or else they have a criminal past they are trying to cover up. these forces are now holding key positions in this country, and that includes the justice system and even the parliament. then he would be happy to be leading a normal life. he and his wife have built up a modest livelihood operating a small kiosk, but in april, he gave another television interview. that was one too many. them on may 6, the police came with bulldozers. there were nearly 100 people. four or five

entitled "amtrak management systemic problems require actions to improve efficiency effectiveness, accountability" that was the name of the report, i was asked by then ranking member oberstar to serve as the lead democrat on the special working group convened by this committee to evaluate that report's findings and make recommendations on subsequent action. certainly amtrak was facing challenges at that time, but among other observations, the democratic members of the working group noted in our view that amtrak, quote, faces difficulties in implementing long range strategic plans because of great uncertainty regarding its federal funding each year, end of quote. during that era, amtrak faced repeated proposals to cut or eliminate the federal funding provided to it. obviously that made it difficult for amtrak's leadership to focus solely on operating the company or on developing long-term goals and performance benchmarks. we hear a lot in the congress about uncertainty. so subsequently, under chairman oberstar's leadership, congress enacted the passenger rail investment improvement
that the surveys have been done, then lead to either one. there has to be an official action taken by the two bodies in order for a landmark to be designated and also for historic district to be designated. so, i'd like to have some consideration given by the commission to extending the liberalization of uses to contributory buildings in designated historic districts, of which i don't think there are any in western soma at the moment. i don't believe so. >> i don't believe so. >> okay. and the other approach might be to take a look at what kind of liberalization could be implemented for these types of buildings and there could be a difference between, for example, landmark buildings and contributory buildings. i think it's mainly -- the liberalization is aimed at uses i think and what can be allow and had what can't be allowed. and there might be consideration to tweaking that a bit for the plan in terms of what kinds of uses might be allowed and what kinds of uses might not be. so, that's a suggestion. and then just on -- this isn't directed to you, it's just a comment. on the overlap betwee
this component as duplicative. the department has heard from the housing action coalition. i believe that all or most of you received a letter requesting a continuance of this item. and in addition to that department staff has had a series of proposed [speaker not understood] with one member of the telephone. and that conclude my presentation. i'm available for questions. >> thank you. is there any public comment on this item? >>> good afternoon, commissioners. tim cohen on behalf of the housing action coalition. i'm just a little history. we worked over a period of several years collaboratively with a lot of the stakeholders, elected officials, city agencies, schools, housing builders in ways that we could craft the ordinances that were carried and passed by the city, by supervisor dufty and wiener. and we're therefore puzzled that from what we can tell, no outreach whatsoever has been made to any of the schools or potential housing builders who might be possibly affected by this proposed ordinance. and i think that at a minimum they might have been consulted for their views on ways to addre
security establishments, our business communities all know this is rear. there is a rear-guard action in this building led by polluters to keep us from taking action on this. we have to face the fact that the deniers are wrong. just plain dead wrong. >> jennifer: that is the incredible senator sheldon white whitehouse unloading on his colleagues at a senate hearing. exactly who is he talking to? take senator gyms inhofe. he's with the senate committee of environment and public works. that senator, senator inhofe has referred to global chime change change as an alarmist. why would he say that? maybe because the top three contributers to his political campaign for the top five years are some of the top fossil fuel industries in the campaign. koch industries, murray energy. devon energy. is there any chance that reason can speak louder than money? here to help us answer that question is jefferey sachs. he's comeing to us via skype from new york. thank you for joining us in "the war room"." >> thanks for having me again. it's great to be with you. 12,347 >> jennifer: i appreciate your p
the momentum. >> thank you, all. one other benefit that was cited in the after action review and also was mentioned today is the chance it meet someone else from the other agency. we also heard a lot about training, understanding ics, understanding dsca and that's defense support of civil authorities. it's the guiding principles for how our armed services are going to support civilians when something happens. and i think those are common across a lot of the themes you are going to hear today and throughout the weekend. so i'd kind of like to take those two off the table because they are sort of gimmes and put it to you, what are the things you told your boss about this exercise and what is something that for next year you would like to see us do? michelle, if you'd start us off. >> so i think that the major task for next year when we do this communications drill, which i hope we continue to do, and i think you mentioned this earlier, we assumed that all of the city's primary communications were online and operational. we used 800 megahertz push to talk radios here. we assumed th

through the senior disabled action housing collaborative. i am here to ask for you to please consider the fact that seniors are not actually the target market for these units and they are not appropriate for seniors. there might be homeless seniors, perhaps, that can use these, but we already have the tenderloin and we already have this development. as the supervisor mentioned, this is against the studies, the regional studies for housing needs and the housing needs as proven by a study group is for low-income family housing, not for single individual housing. the tenderloin and lots of low-income housing developers are focused on that type of housing. so, if, in fact, this is for, as the people on the radio said today, successfully used in other cities specifically for young beginning workers, please remove any reference to seniors because, in fact, seniors will not be in this housing. and to pre-he tend or pimp the housing of seniors and the disabled in saying that these 220 square feet is appropriate for a person in a wheelchair with a walker, or with a cane and helpful person is a
